The manner in which prosecutors exercise their decision-making authority has far-reaching implications, both in terms of justice and effectiveness in law enforcement and in terms of the consequences for individual citizens. A determination to prosecute represents a policy judgment that the fundamental interests of society require the application of the criminal laws to a particular set of circumstances—recognizing both that serious violations of law must be prosecuted, and that prosecution entails profound consequences for the accused and the family of the accused whether or not a conviction ultimately results. Other prosecutorial decisions can be equally significant. Decisions, for example, regarding the specific charges to be brought, or concerning plea dispositions, effectively determine the range of sanctions that may be imposed for criminal conduct. Criminal investigations also affect the success of related civil suits for recovery of damages.
If you are facing white-collar criminal charges, it’s important that you call an experienced attorney as soon as possible for representation. Our lawyers can start working on your case immediately.
Penalties for White-Collar Crimes
While collar crimes are penalized differently depending on the type of crime, whether or not the crime is classified as a misdemeanor or a felony, the amount of money involved in the white collar crime, and the defendant’s criminal record. First-degree felony white-collar crimes are punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
